The village was first mentioned in a written document in 1305 as Ropiza. Owners of Ropica in 15th century, the Sobek family, built a fort in the village. It was rebuilt to a baroquechâteau around 1700 and then to a classicist one in 1810. It remains in that style today, although it dilapidated during the communist era and is now completely devastated.
